Campaigning Gone Wrong 
I just got a phone call from the provincial Liberal party telling me that Tracey something or other, our MPP, has been doing a great job for us and asking whether they can count on my vote in the upcoming election.

So I asked what she'd done. The poor girl on the phone had absolutely nothing for me. She replied that she didn't have information about the platform, to which I responded that I was really only interested in what she's done so far.

Nothing at all, apparently.

I probably couldn't be swayed in my vote at this time, but heck... you'd think they'd at least try. Or maybe this area is so locked up for them that they don't need to bother.

Happy Race Day!! 
My PVR is getting a workout today. I'm just now starting to watch the Monaco Grand Prix. Then it's the Indy 500 and then finally, later tonight, the Coke 600, which is the longest NASCAR race in the season. Fun times for a lazy Sunday.

Crime 
I'm drinking this stuff tonight.

Poor Michelle. She tried the first sip before I'd had any. She said it was like drinking pepper sauce. She wasn't really wrong.

After the first few sips, the pepper isn't quite so potent anymore, though it's nearly 10% alcohol, so that might help.

Beer Advocate basically hates it. If not for the fact that I've never had anything like it before, I'd probably agree with them. It's uniqueness sort of saves it for me though.

That and the fact that I'm not really familiar with the Lukcy Basartd Ale (not a spelling error) that it's based on, so the sense of shame at ruining it is lost on me.

I won't buy more, but I'm glad I had it.

Today I Drove a Porsche For The First Time 
I'm not really sure what I can say about it. It was wonderful!

I drove a base model Boxster and a Cayman S. But were just sublime and I'm sure I could write about the tiny little details but there was one thing that stood above all others.

The grip!! My God!! The unbelievable amount of grip!! I went around highway on ramps and off ramps faster than I've ever done before and I don't think I was even close to pushing the limits of the cars.

All that was on winter tires!!

I've been a car enthusiast for a long time now. I'm very happy to know there's plenty out there still to experience and get excited about. What a fun day!!

Times Are Changing 
For my entire adult life I've been working full time for the same company. Today they gave me my gift to celebrate 15 years of service. It's a juicer. Hopefully I like home made juice.

Also, on Wednesday, I resigned. My last day will be May 7th.

*sigh*

It's the end of an era. On the 8th I'll start a new job with a new company. I'm confident that it will all go well, but it's a huge change in my life and, of course, it's a risk.

If I make it to Christmas, life will be good and next year should be one to celebrate. Wish me luck.
